Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed talks that the club are about to make a move for Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

The Spain star has been linked with plenty of clubs toward the latter stages of the season but the Blues have denied they are set to swoop for him as they have enough firepower without him.

“No, I don't think so, because with (Didier) Drogba and (Nicolas) Anelka it's too similar,” Ancelotti said.

"Torres is a fantastic player but it's better to grow players with this ability in the academy. We have a very good squad for next season.

"It is not an old team, we have players with experience, ability and skills. After the FA Cup final we will have a meeting with Roman (Abramovich) and take a decision about next season."
